Forgive me for not posting anything yet this morning. I’ve been working on an Avery Bradley post and finding out that it’s very difficult to properly describe the way I feel about him.While I struggle with my by-now-probably-very-butchered opinion on Bradley (which will likely publish sometime around 4:30 or 5, or whenever my writer’s block of sorts goes away), do yourself a favor and read Ben Rohrbach’s piece about Kevin Garnett and the Celtic way. Here’s a brief quote from it. (WEEI)“There are no I’s. There are no You’s. It’s a We. It’s an Our. It’s a They. It’s an Us,” said Garnett. “The first thing you have to have in here is that you have to understand what you’re coming into, understand that being a Celtic is bigger than anybody in this locker room. You’re carrying on tradition. You have to have a work ethic. You have to care about the next guy beside you. If you can’t and if you don’t, then you’re not here.

During some time on the bench during Monday’s Boston Celtics game against the Washington Wizards, veteran Kevin Garnett’s long-kept secret was finally made public when his drinking problem was exposed for all the world to see. Much like Ted Striker, KG’s drinking problem isn’t related to his inability to control his consumption of alcohol, it [...]
Avery Bradley dribbled between his legs, crossed over in front of his body and burst to his left down the lane, tapping in a layup. The Nets, who trailed by 21 points, looked like they had been hit in the gut. Bradley's highlight-reel offensive play in the fourth quarter on Wednesday was a nice moment for the Celtics in their 89-70 victory, but it was two defensive plays that...
KG must have been pretty upset with his play in the fourth during Monday’s contest with the Washington Wizards. The Big Ticket has always been an intense dude, but recently he has come across as even more high strung. Celtics assistant coach Tyronn Lue did not look pleased to be getting a bath while trying to enjoy the game from his court side seats, but Ray Allen found it pretty...
After a winless start through the season's first three games, the Boston Celtics have rallied to win four in a row following the return of team leader Paul Pierce. Why do I call him the team's "leader?" Because that's what Kevin Garnett calls him, and when KG talks basketball -- and especially Boston basketball -- you listen.
Even if he gets a little too blue...
Rubio is part point guard and part pop star to a fan base that has been eager for a reason to get excited since Kevin Garnett left town in 2007.

Avery Bradley was a game-changer in the Celtics' 89-70 win over the Nets.
The Celtics outrebounded the Nets 45-34 and they played outstanding D tonight. Paul Pierce led the way for the Celtics in this game with 24 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 1 steal. Brandon Bass (15 points, 13 rebounds and 1 assist in 26 minutes) and Kevin Garnett (14 points, 12 rebounds and 1 assist in 26 minutes) dominated the paint when they were on the floor. Avery Bradley...
There were many reasons for Avery Bradley to pass up shots in the Celtics’ 89-70 win over the Nets last night. In fact, a statistical case could have been made that Bradley shouldn’t have been involved in the offense at all at important times in the game.
